Housing and inequality - creating now Housing Stock - the sequel

Friday, 11 November, 2016 - 10:00 to 16:00

Following the very successful 'Creating New Housing Stock' Workshop in February, London Quakers have organised a follow-on day to do more work on Community Land Trusts, and ways to generate housing with long term affordability. Apparently there is another legal mechanism, as well as the one the CLT uses. We're looking at this, plus other initiatives which will interest Quakers.

Detailed programme to follow, but put this in your diary now - judging by the level of interest in February, this one is going to be full.
